I will continue to pray as we all struggle through this tragedy!May the Peace we find in this holy season be yours!Karen
I specifically remember after 911 and the continuing months of tragedy and fear, one of those silly "reality" shows starting their new season on TV; I think it was "Survivor." While I understood it on the one side...about life trying to move on and fight for some sort of ground to stand on of familiarity...it felt wrong to watch adults "pretending" to survive at a time when real survivors were out there, their lives shattered, every frame of life broken over those who did not survive. You are right to hit the "pause" button, Janice. I find myself only blogging as a distraction, but it doesn't do much good. It is hard for me to see my big, tall, strong husband walk in the room with red-rimmed eyes, having turned off the television for a little while. If it's too much for us, what must it be for them...
I understand completely! Hugs to you and yours.Love,Renee
My hope and prayer is that the people in power will finally have the guts to do something other than lower the flag and offer prayer only to go on with business as usual a week later. These tragedies happen all too often.
We all share this heartbreak. And we understand and share that words are hard to express what we all feel. Be at peace.
Absolutely agree with everyone who has commented. Take your time and we will be here when it feels right for you...and for us. Such heartbreak. Sending kind and loving thought to all.
Agreed. I can only hug my kids closer. Tell them I love them. And pray for peace both here and abroad.
I feel for people in the US who are, yet again, in shock. Many people must be wondering if getting rid of guns is the answer. I live in the UK and most people here don't have guns or knives. They are easy to obtain, but most people don't as it isn't part of our culture. Even our regular police officers don't carry guns (a subject debated many times). Yes, we still have violence and aggression in our society and unstable people who want to hurt others, but they are less likely to use a gun because they don't have easy access to them.
Blessings to you. We'll all be here when you're ready.
Our hearts are with you in the US. In Australia, after the Port Arthur disaster in the 1990s, our laws were tightened and no-one has suffered from the restrictions. Let's hope for change.
Yes. It is time for a change here. Lets hope the powers that be can rethink some of the slaw.
